As part of the STEPS Engineering Your Future Programme, PORSAV partner Palliare will provide young people with the opportunity to meet their Engineering Team and experience Biomedical Engineering in action, April 14th – 16th, 2021. They have planned an exciting three-day programme including interactive tours of the engineering labs, live demonstrations of surgical products in operation, encouraging career/design process talks from the engineering team, online hands-on engineering design challenges, and fun quizzes with prizes to be won!
STEPS Engineering Your Future (STEPS EYF) is designed to inspire Transition Year students to study engineering. The Engineers Ireland STEPS Programme is a non-profit outreach programme that promotes interest and awareness in engineering as a future career to school students in the Republic of Ireland through a portfolio of projects.
Palliare, an Irish Biomedical Device company, based in Galway, works on researching and developing advanced technologies for Laparoscopic, Endoscopic and Robotic Surgeries starting from initial concept design and bringing into the market. The goal is to enhance the safety of Surgical Procedures and the Operating Room by working closely with leading surgeons and medical professionals in hospitals.
